I like going to ASP because I get to play with my friends, I get almost all As, and I get more help.

Have CAN's After School Programs Changed in Light of the COVID-19 Outbreak?

Yes- CAN's "After School" Programs have shifted to "Out Of School," as we provide support for our learners throughout the school day with virtual check-ins and safe, socially distant outdoor activities.


Ann Arbor Public Schools is starting out the school year virtually, so CAN will be present to help our families in any way we can to ensure students can succeed in this style of learning environment and to find ways to safely support our working parents within our capacity.
